Guided Mindfulness Meditation Series 2 was designed by Jon Kabat-Zinn as a core training tool to begin and deepen a daily meditation practice, and to bring mindfulness into every aspect of life.

They include:
- Guided sitting meditationsthe basics of mindfulness meditation
- Mindfulness while lying downguided sessions for learning how to "fall awake" rather than fall asleep, which, teaches Kabat-Zinn, is what mindfulness is all about
- The Mountain Meditation and Lake Meditationevokes two powerful images to deepen concentration and expand one's feeling for the inward gesture involved in mindfulness practice
- Silence, with bells to mark the passage of time5-, 10-, 15-, 20-, and 30-minute timed sessions
Mindfulness is moment-to-moment non-judgmental awareness, a way to connect with a deep sense of comfort, balance, insight, and freedom within our own lives, both physically and emotionally. It is a way to embody sanity, clarity, and harmony, even in challenging circumstances. And it's a way to heal ourselves and our relationships with others. But it does require cultivation. These guided meditations provide an essential set of tools to help support that process.
